Last week, I tried to burn a DL DVD at home (that was my first attempt ever). I know the best media available are Verbatim DL, but didn't have them at hand, so got Imation ones. Before burning it, I upgraded my home PC DVD recorder (Sony DRU 720A J02) firmware to latest version (J08). After that, I tried to record the disk but operation failed two times, so I gave up till next day.
When at work following morning, I installed same version of Imageburn (184.108.40.206) in my notebook (here I have a TSSTcorp DVD +-RW TS-L632H D200) and after some help from a workmate, I could record the 4 DL disks I wanted. Only one problem was that the recording speed was just 1.2x, instead of 16x I usually get with DVD5. Since that upgrade, I can't longer get old recording speeds in any of both recorders. In my home PC, I already uninstalled Daemon Tools and SPTD driver (I was getting "SPTD can have a detrimental effect on drive performance" error) and in my Dell Vostro 1500 notebook removed Imageburn 220.127.116.11 and have tried Nero and CloneDVD2, I no longer get good recording speeds.
Any help would be highly appreciated.
THanks a million!
